In this virtual world, there will be friends and fun adventures waiting for you… However, there are also rampant PK (Player Kill, an abbreviation for Player Killer referring to players who intentionally kill each other), repeated conflicts between guilds, and mysterious events that even the game developers can’t remember incorporating…
The world had begun to turn into a lawless zone that even the system administrators could not control. In such a chaotic game, there emerged a young man, Haseo, who was feared as the Terror of Death.

Who is Tri-Edge? Why does in-game deaths affect the real world?
Witness the relationship between Haseo and “The World” as they unravel the mystery which begins to go beyond the realm of “fun” games.
